Thanks for bringing this to your blog, Rich. As you know, so much is unexpected with online communities. Mine was rocked to the core last weekend when a beloved 29-year-old member died in his sleep. I posted a tribute, built a gallery of all the blogs about him and communicated funeral arrangements to the community. I also burned an audio file of him singing Redemption Song sent to me by another member, to a CD to be played at the funeral. He had shared his love of singing with this member and not others in his life. It was unreal, and you're right...this wasn't part of the plan. I never thought I could be so shaken by the death of someone I met all of three times but spoke to so much online. And I certainly never expected to console a community because of it.
